Gov. Bill Haslam today appointed Roger Amos Page to the Tennessee Supreme Court, replacing Justice Gary R. Wade, who retired in September. The Madison County attorney has been a judge on the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals since his appointment by Haslam in December 2011. He previously served as a circuit court judge for the 26th Judicial District. “I have been honored to serve the citizens of Tennessee for the past 18 years as a member of the judiciary, and I am humbled by the governor’s confidence in selecting me for the Tennessee Supreme Court,” Page said. Page's appointment is subject to confirmation by the Tennessee General Assembly under the state's new system that allows state lawmakers to review and reject the governor's nominations.
